I gave Emmet her medicine. She asked me to look up a song by Skeeter Davis. The name of the song is called “Oh The Loneliness Goes On And On And On”. I could not find it anywhere for her on YouTube? I asked if she knew the album it could be on, she shook her had no. She asked me to name the albums that did come up. I named the albums plus a few of the songs on each one, one of the songs were “Tell Laura I Love Her”. She asked me to play that and then play “The Answer Song”.
Me: What is “The Answer Song”
Emmet: “Tell Tommy I Love Him”
If you haven’t listened to them, you should, sometime.
I found the song and played it for her. My curiosity got the best of me as I sat and watched her sing the song word for word, her neck tilted, and her hands on her heart.
Me: Emmett, do you think of anyone in-particular when you listen to all these love songs by Skeeter Davis?
Her: Yes, well I used to anyway. We broke up a while back ago. You remember Archy Bunker?
Me: Yes Emmett, I do. What happened with you two?
Emmett: I can’t talk about it, it wouldn’t be right.
Me: Ooo, come on
Emmett: Well on our “last Date” (which by the way is another song by Skeeter Davis) Archy, he passed gas and the Odor was too much…
